The Lyrics

This is an experiment. I'll tell you what it's about when the votes come in.
In the morning, get the paper
See my drive from my window sill
And I always bring a scraper
Cause there's always some new road kill
For the neighbors drive like cabbies
They think they have lights to beat
And they're shmooshing people's tabbies
That are always in the street

Got a flat cat, out there again
Wheel got him, pavement pound
Got a flat cat, out there again

We've an awful lot of felines
You can really hear them meow
They can't seem to make a beeline
Just before each screech and Pow!
Sometimes find a skunk or wildcat
No ID or bloody collar
Everytime I've heard the big splat
I sure wish I had a dollar

Got a flat cat, out there again
Wheel got him, big and round
Like a flap jack, out there again

We tried putting up some "stop" signs
They got stolen or just sprayed
We tried issuing some cop fines
They kept speeding once they've paid
Those black cats are all but gone now
They've all gone to kitty heaven
Little crosses on my lawn now
Last I counted were eleven

Got a flat cat, out there again
Wheel got him, pavement pound
Got a flat cat, out there again

You've hidden something in it, a pattern of letters and/or words. Still working on it. Taking the first stanza as a scrambled acrostic, I get IS FAT CAT, or, A CAT FITS, or some other combination of those letters.

The experiment is how fast I would get "ones" just because it's about harming a pet. Didn't take long. Yesterday, the same thing happened to John Barry. I've mentioned this before about the movies and media. You can murder humans all over the place for the silliest of reasons, but not a dog or cat. The movie "A Fish Called Wanda" dealt with this subject as a gag. An animal loving hit man keeps missing his intended hit of an old lady, and instead kills her three dogs in sucession. His sorrow and remorse over it is the joke. I heard from a few people who would not go see this movie because they heard dogs get killed. In the film "True Lies", Schwartzneggar bops the heads of a couple Dobermans together, then you see the obligitory shot of them running off unharmed. Frankly, I find this "knee-jerk" reaction sickening. This mentality is what causes people to run their cars off a cliff rather than hit a loose dog. (See the movie "Beetlejuice")

Rick - well, at least they didn't ding ya on your pacing - which was "Purr-fect" here. 5-5-5 from me.
